“Burning in this picture is a young man who chose to sacrifice himself today. I mean, it’s a thief who was caught today 1st October 2023 while attempting to steal a generator in a new generation church in my neighborhood, Atiku Abubbakar Avenue after putting off the generator that was on. The mob descended on him with lots of matchet cuts and bruises from stones before finally dragging him out to the tarred today set him ablaze.

While I condemn jungle Justice and advice that people should stop stealing, I have the confidence that the young man is in Heaven already although too early, because he was confessing and praying the Lord’s prayer before being finally set ablaze.”
